Description

This work approaches the issue of overcoming metaphysics from a double perspective known as "insideoutness": it opts for the constant overcoming of one metaphysics with another, and it acknowledges some ways of stepping outside metaphysics from inside. The book overviews the development of metaphysics from Aristotle to the 18th century and then interprets the modern and recent instances of overcoming metaphysics from the double perspective.
